The Winder-Barrow High School Swim Doggs have really been making a name for themselves over the past five years.
It all started when Mitchell Buttler joined the team as a freshman for the 2009-2010 season. That year started what has become a tradition of swimmers qualiying for state, coach Jennifer Blevins said. With Buttler, the boys 400 free relay also qualified.
The 2010-2011 season saw freshman Brittany Litke qualify in two events as well as Buttler, again in the backstroke. Litke transfered to Buford High School the next year and finished out her high school career there.
During 2011-2012, the Swim Doggs welcomed freshman Quinn McDaniels, who joined Buttler and an improved Alex Hentenaar.
